Today I’ve decided to do something a little bit different and I really hope that you will like it. I have noticed that several brands are bringing out new eye makeup products for Fall 2013 and all the lines include silver and gold. A mini trend, if you wish?!
Maybe you are not ready to rock a metallic eye in Autumn but holidays are coming, so that may be a good time to play. Plus with the new formulas you can get both subtle wash of colour or full on foil like effect, whichever you prefer.

Have you seen the photos from The 67th Golden Globe awards? What dress did you like the best? What look? There were lots of beautiful looks and dresses. My favourite look was created with NARS cosmetics on Christina Aguilera. I have to say that she looked absolutely stunning.
Nars Make Up Artist used some new products from Spring 2010 collection to create this amazing look:
Orgasm Illuminator to cheekbones, décolletage, and shoulders for an all over glow.
And Easy Lover Lip Gloss (on the top of Fantasia Lipliner Pencil and Niagara Lipstick)
Some other products that were used and Christina’s dress:
Here is a preview of the bright and colourful NARS makeup collection for Summer 2014 – Adult Swim.
The face of the collection is the beautiful German model – Toni Garrn. And I just love the lip colour she is rocking, looks like it’s Priscilla lip gloss.
The products are:
Duo Eye Shadows
- Tropical Princess, Neon lemon lime / Icy lavender
- Lost Coast, Golden pewter / Lilac snow
Shimmer Eye Shadow
I can honestly spend hours looking at the close ups of the makeup from the red carpet. It gives a lot of inspiration! This is why I was very excited to look at all the MET Gala photos.
I actually have details on how to get the look of Mary-Kate Olsen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Bosworth and Kirsten Dunst.
It does not mean that you have to copy their looks but you can use it as your inspiration.

“Mary-Kate wanted her makeup to look tonal, earthy and utterly feminine,” says makeup artist Molly R. Stern. “It’s very modern and matte. The secret to pulling it off is imbuing the cheeks with a spot of color.”
Molly first hydrated the skin with Natura Bisse C+C Vitamin Cream and primed with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer to ensure the longevity of her makeup. She followed with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in Ivory for light, sheer coverage and created a matte finish with Oxygen Mineral Powder #2.
To create contour and warmth in the cheeks, Molly first applied the bronze shade of Hourglass Illume Crème-To-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to the base of the cheek bone.

For more intensity, she lined the inside of the upper lash line with Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner in Cognac, a chocolate shade. For an understated lash look, Molly applied Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer to the bottom lashes only, leaving the top ones bare. “I wanted to subtly tint the lower lashes,” she says, explaining why she used the lash topcoat.
To create a berry stain, Molly pressed Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Nocturnal, a plum wine shade, into the center of her top and bottom lip. “The goal was to make it look like she had been eating berries,” says Molly. She added, “Mary-Kate is an amazing collaborator who likes to push the boundaries.”
Makeup artist Emma Lovell drew inspiration from Gwyneth Paltrow’s dramatic Prada dress and her tight chignon when devising the star’s luminous look.
